During Mercury retrograde it looks as if the planet is moving backwards from our view on earth. This is an illusion caused by the position of Earth in relation to that of the planet. It is believed that during this perceived backwards motion, technology and communication could get disrupted. We are all affected by the effect of Mercury in Retrograde

In astronomy, a new moon marks the first lunar phase. A new moon symbolises new beginnings. Many people use the energy of a new moon when starting a new project or to achieve their goals. There is a full moon approximately every 30 days. This is the length of time it takes for the Moon to go through one whole lunar phase cycle.
The Moon’s phases and the months of the year are connected – the word ‘month’ takes its root from the word ‘moon’. During April and May this year there will be a ‘supermoon’.
During a New Moon, the Sun and the Moon are aligned. The Sun and the Earth are on opposite sides of the moon. The side of the moon facing the Earth receives no direct sunlight and is lit only by dim sunlight reflected from Earth. The Earth and Sun are at the same celestial longitude. The Moon is only ‘New’ for a moment, when the when the Sun and the Moon are directly aligned in the sky.
The energy of a new moon lasts approximately three days before and after the lunation. The moon phases can affect our mind, body and emotions.
What to do during the new moon:
Write down your intentions and what you’re looking to manifest
According to NASA, there is a new 13th star sign, Ophiuchus, meaning we may have been reading the wrong horoscopes all along (ugh so frustrating😤🤦♀️). The ancient Babylonians ignored the fact the sun moves through 13 constellations, not 12, to make a tidy match with the 12-month calendar. Ophiuchus comes from the Greek word meaning ‘serpent bearing’ and is represented by a man wrestling a snake🐍
